Safari clothes colors

Jump to last reply

Most articles and posts that I've read suggest staying away from colors outside the khaki/tan/brown/dull green range, including white. I sunburn very quickly (even though strong sunblock) and often wear a long sleeve white shirt over tank tops and t-shirts to protect my skin if I'm going to be out for long periods. I don't know if I can find this type of shirt again in a "proper" khaki type color. It's 100% cotton and has an extremely loose weave so it doesn't add any extra weight/warmth but really helps keep the sun off.

I've also seen articles and posts that say that people are really worried about "proper" colors their first time but then not again.

Is white okay, or will it actually startle/spook animals? I ask now so that I have lots of time to find various alternatives on sale if I need to be looking for something different. I don't care if it gets dusty and dingy looking, it rinses in a sink easily and dries quickly.

Thanks!
